Excellent...a classic of instructional writing 30. Juli 2013
Von Laurence - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
There's no better introduction to sailboat racing ever published. Many sailing books suffer from a surfeit of jargon, incomprehensible amateur prose and cute inside least, that would be true for most of the dozens I have attempted to read. Cort and Stearns assume you have basic sail handling skills, such as the ability to tack, gybe and fly a spinnaker. Other than that, they start from scratch. They do a beautiful job of explaining each phase of a race--start, windward leg, mark rounding, downwind strategy, finishing--in clear and simple language. Every element is covered logically and with easy to follow examples drawn from their own extensive experience. The diagrams are simple enough to follow, but don't leave out anything. It's a brilliant piece of instructional writing that can be read over and over again, and I have given copies to each one of my own crew. If you want to race and want to win, get this book and read it many times. And don't skip the Epilogue, which is a poetic description of why we sail that has restored my sense of proportion more than once.

Excellent. Read first before others! 28. Dezember 2013
Von j - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As a beginner to racing, this book is a must. I am still reading, replaying last summer races, to find out what needs correcting, improving and, what went correct. Most situations that occur while racing is covered, It covers how, where, to sail a course. With tactics, compass headings and, when best to tack/gibe.
This book is like a classroom, while reading I can replay practices and, racing event, see what I did, to what I should have done. I am still reading/rereading this book replaying scenarios, it's like an adult video game,
Just Awesome !
I started with "One Design" by Dave Perry: w/out racing experience, for me wrong book. I will read One Design, after I absorb Sailboat Racing.
Fair Winds, Fair Seas,

Easy to understand and great diagrams. You'll need a good basic understanding of sailing to soak it all up but if your looking to go faster this book will help you and give you good racing stratagies

Easy to Read and Informative- Buy the Hardcopy! 30. November 2014
Von Snore - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The book is very informative. It presents the information in a readable/learnable manner. Can't say enough good things about it! Although I have sailed for some time, I never learned to push a boat to the edge. This book was teaches some of the nuances of trim that allow you to coax hull speed out of your boat on a regular basis- or get real close to it!

HUGE issue---- I bought this as a digital book versus a printed copy. This is one of those books you really need onboard in a readable format. For example- the book addresses things like backstay tension for various points of sail. This is something that one really wants as a reference while sailing. If I had purchased a paper version it would have stickie-bookmarks for each point of sail. While it is theoretically possible to do this on a digital device, even on a 33 foot sailboat, managing a touch screen and reading it on deck as the spray is flying is "challenging".

Bottom line- buy it!
